A cold, damp, miserable day around the house. Still, It is beyond the middle of October, so it’s only fitting that Autumn starts to show its true colours.

Time to break out the soup recipes. Time to break out flat breat. Time to break out the baked goods.

Time to stop and give thanks for all that life has to give. Remember when I said that Thanksgiving wasn’t just limited to a day in October for Canadians and a day in November for Americans? This is what I meant. There should always be something that makes you stop, pause, reflect, smile, and be grateful every day. As a dear friend of mine gave me this quote the other day because she says it reminds her of me and the relationship I’m in: “I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I’m with you.”

You see, in my mind, people put too much pressure on finding “the one” because they’re sure they won’t be ‘complete’ without a certain someone to love. But no one can complete you. A person may complement who you are, but that’s as far as it can go. Take a moment and be thankful for being who you are. Love starts inside of you.

(It’s also the only thing in life that you have more of, the more you give away.)
